Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
Hello i just bought an 88 ford ranger 2.9 automatic 4x4 2.9engine i just had the oil pump replaced. but when i put it in drive transmission takes a little bit to engage you know the little tug that lets you know its ready to go when it kicks in it feels like you give it gas but it just dont seem to go like it should will run ok when it finally gets up and goes but if im ont he interstate i can get it up to 70 but once it goes on any uphill it will slow down to about 50 no more power pedal to the metal passing gear kicks in but no gain in speed....any help apreciated
Is the trans fluid level ok? check the color of the fluid, should be a nice cherry red color, and notice the smell of the fluid. if it smells burnt, or like the smell of burned brakes. if you have the bad smell, the clutches are burning, time to rebuild.
